#SalemOR Progressive Film Series – Tues. May 16th

The Mask You Live In53843-210x300

Tuesday, May 16, 2017 starting at 7:00 PM

Grand Theatre | 191 High Street NE, Salem, OR

This film is FREE for anyone 18 years or younger!

The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.

Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men.

Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the “boy crisis” and tactics to combat it.

The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.

Speakers:

  • Dr. Alex Rowell, a psychology resident at Oregon State University’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)
  • Xóchitl Mota-Back, visiting assistant Professor at Willamette University’s Sociology Department
Admission is $5 | FREE for anyone 18 years or younger!

7 p.m. | Third Tuesday, Sept-May
